Just answer this question. If it's possible you can give a thoughtful answer, I mean.
Would you expect Democrats to sit quietly by and cave in to Republicans' demands if they refused to negotiate a law passed strictly on a Republican partisan vote of which the majority were and still are against and with unintended unfavorable consequences?
You do know Democrats have shutdown the government numerous times in the past and negotiations on the part of Republicans ended them?
Republicans would have never excluded Democrats from having any input or tweaking a law of this magnitude by refusing to negotiate in the first place. And Republicans would have never passed a law of this magnitude on a strictly partisan vote without one Democrat on board.
I know that was a lot to digest but just try and answer the first question.
Over and over again you keep repeating the false claim that "the majority were and still are against" the Affordable Care Act. It's an out and out lie. "

These are the facts:

"Only 33 percent believe that the health law should be repealed, delayed, or defunded. 29 percent believe that “Congress should make changes to improve the law,” 26 percent believe that “Congress should let the law take effect” and see what happens, and 12 percent believe that the law should be expanded."

In a rare press interview (You Tube on January 29, 2010), an uncomfortable, ungrammatical, and rambling off-teleprompter Obama admitted:“There’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there (into Obama Care) that we were (?) eliminating….it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.”

If I understand the President’s convoluted response (speaking two months before Obama Care’s passage), provisions of Obama Care violated his pledge to the American people, but he is working on them, even though they got “snuck” in by the President’s own party.(I know of no subsequent statement from the President that these alarming provisions were corrected).

The most striking admission that Obama’s two promises are false is shown in the evolution of Obama’s PR machine.

As the details were being drafted behind closed doors, Obama Care’s official web sites repeated blanket assurances that “you can keep your doctor and your plan” while warning against “scary chain e mails and videos” from “those who find truth a little inconvenient.”(See: White House Reality Check, launched in August of 2009). Another official White House web site continued point-blank assurances to worried seniors, asking “will I be able to keep my doctor?” more than a year after the passage of Obama Care.

As Obama Care crept towards implementation, the carefully teleprompted Obama offered vaguer assurances than “you can keep your doctor and plan.” His new refrain instead was:“If you’re one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health
(Address from the White House, June, 28, 2012). Notice: The President now promises only that you can keep health insurance, not the doctor or health insurance program you have now and like.

If we fast forward to the present, the Obama Care agitprop machine seems to have forgotten entirely “you can keep your doctor and your insurance.”

Except where answers are unavoidable, it is as if the President did not spend an entire year assuring the American public that he would keep his two solemn promises.

Instead, Obama Care propaganda now uses the classic bait-and-switch gambit. We should forget all about keeping our doctor or insurance plan. That’s not important at all.

Just look at these other marvels of Obama Care and forget you are likely to lose your doctor and your plan.

As a bait-and-switch example, ObamaCare Facts 2013 offers sixty two facts of Obama Care, none of which even mentions keeping your own doctor or the plan that you like. All kinds of new promises are added.

One of these “facts”– members of Congress themselves will be on Obama Care – has just become a myth, as will many others as time passes (such as Obama Care not adding to the deficit).

Obama lied and health insurance that worked for millions has died.

ObamaCare is ObamaFraud with his promises another example of an empty suit with only style and no substance.

Only a liberal socialist would not understand the democratic process. It's messy and there's a two-party system for a reason. Both sides have to find common ground when there's an impasse, especially when it involves a major law affecting society in such a profound way if it's going to continue to work.
Refusing to negotiate is not part of this process. Nor has it ever been. Only now has it become a political game with posturing and maneuvering by the power elite with us as the pawns to discredit the other side and secure a one-party system.
Apparently, the socialist system you desire as well.
Want to talk process?

The Continuing Resolution has ZERO to do with Obamacare, Obamacare is already funded so it has NOTHING to do with Obamacare. It is not being held up by democratic process because the process is to put it to a vote in the House but Boehner WON'T take it to the floor.

Our government has been so incompetent since Obama took office, the government hasn't been able to produce a budget. We have not had a budget since Obama took office.
Please use verbiage that is reflective of the real world. Using terms such as "budget impass" has nothing to do with what is happening today, or anything in the past 4 years, because we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office.

And create a massive "get the vote out" grassroots movement to make sure these people get to the polls. We actually learned that from the Democrats in 2012.

Those who want Obama Care repealed are simply exercising the same rights as consumers to return their purchase after being subject to fraud. And I thought Obama was a big supporter of consumer protection. That’s what his Obama Fact Check site says.

Collage of Obama’s Obama Care Promises Concerning “You can keep your doctor and you can keep your policy”

“If somebody has insurance they like they should be able to keep that insurance. If they have a doctor that they like, they should be able to keep their doctor.” Barack Obama, YouTube, 3/6/09

“The plans you are discussing embody my core belief that Americans should have better choices for health insurance, building on the principle that if they like the coverage they have now, they can keep it,…” Barack Obama, Letter to Senate Democrat Leaders, 6/2/09

“Americans must have the freedom to keep whatever doctor and health care plan they have…” Barack Obama, Remarks on Health Care, Washington, D.C., 6/11/09

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health care reform should be guided by a simple principle: fix what’s broken and build on what works.” Barack Obama, Address to the AMA, 6/15/09

“There’s no doubt that we have to preserve what’s best in the health care system, and that means allowing Americans who like their doctor and like their health care plan to keep their plan. And that’s going to be a priority for us.” Barack Obama, Remarks at Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale, VA, 7/1/09

“I know a lot of Americans who are satisfied with their health care right now are wondering what reform would mean for them, so let me be clear: If you like your doctor or health care provider, you can keep them. If you like your health care plan, you can keep that too.” Barack Obama, Remarks on Health Care, Washington, D.C., 7/15/09

“And that means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health care reform should be guided by a simple principle: fix what’s broken and build on what works.” Barack Obama, Holmdel, NJ, 7/16/09

“Those who oppose reform will also tell you that under our plan, you won’t get to choose your doctor, that some bureaucrat will choose for you. That’s also not true. Michelle and I don’t want anyone telling us who our family’s doctor should be, and no one should decide that for you either. Under our proposals, if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor. If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance. Period. End of story.” Barack Obama, Weekly Address, 7/18/09

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” Barack Obama, Town Hall Meeting, 8/11/09

“No matter what you’ve heard, if you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it.” Barack Obama, Weekly Radio Address, 8/15/09

“If you like your doctor, you’re going to be able to keep your doctor. If you like your plan, keep your plan. I don’t believe we should give government or the insurance companies more control over health care in America. I think it’s time to give you, the American people, more control over your health.” Barack Obama,Speech George Mason University, 3/19/09

“If you already have health insurance through your job—and because many of you are members of unions, you do—nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change your coverage or your doctor. Let me repeat: Nothing in this plan will require you to change your coverage or your doctor.” Barack Obama, Address to the AFL-CIO Convention, 9/15/09

""Establishment GOPers assail tea party on shutdown
Republican establishment gripes about House tea party lawmakers over budget impasse
""DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-- From county chairmen to national party luminaries, veteran Republicans across the country are accusing tea party lawmakers of staining the GOP with their refusal to bend in the budget impasse in Washington.
The Republican establishment also is signaling a willingness to strike back at the tea party in next fall's elections.
"It's time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process," former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu argues, faulting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and tea party Republicans in the House as much as President Barack Obama for taking an uncompromising stance.
Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is just as pointed, saying this about the tea party-fueled refusal to support spending measures that include money for Obama's health care law: "It never had a chance."
The anger emanating from Republicans like Sununu and Barbour comes just three years after the GOP embraced the insurgent political group and rode its wave of new energy to return to power in the House.
Now, they're lashing out with polls showing Republicans bearing most of the blame for the federal shutdown, which entered its 11th day Friday. In some places, they're laying the groundwork to take action against the tea party in the 2014 congressional elections.
Iowa Republicans are recruiting a pro-business Republican to challenge six-term conservative Rep. Steve King, a leader in the push to defund the health care law. Disgruntled Republicans are further ahead in Michigan, where second-term, tea party-backed Rep. Justin Amash is facing a Republican primary challenger who is more in line with — and being encouraged by — the party establishment. And business interest groups, long aligned with the Republican Party, also are threatening to recruit and fund strong challengers to tea party House members.""

Did you find that post you threatened to show everyone here and discover you're an idiot?
And, you forgot to answer the post again. Here it is for your convenient reference:
Obama is just a figurehead. He doesn't do anything. For Obama to do anything wrong, he actually has to do something. However, because those who are actually making the decisions use Obama's image and name, let's just blame it on Obama, ok?
Let's talk about Obama's "recovery". There are 5 times as many part time jobs being created as full time jobs.
Now, let's talk about available jobs. There are more than 30 million illegal aliens here doing the work Obama is paying other people to not do. If you can't find a job, take one of those jobs. go in there and tell them you're an American and you have a right to that job, and the Constitution and federal law will back you up. Now, all you have to do is get a president that will enforce the law.
Perhaps you need to look beyond your own neighborhood for a job. How about going to some state like, oh, say, Texas and get a job. It's booming there.
The job situation is doing nothing but getting worse under Obama. Each day the opportunities to do what I suggest become fewer. They're still there, though. Just go out there and find them. Buy a copy of the Houston chronicle and look through the classifieds if you can't think of anything else to do. Get on the internet and look for a job.
I'll tell you how to find a job.
Get up every moning early and start looking. Stop at every place of business or where you see work being done and ask. Show them you are the type of person who wants to work for a living. Take the first job offered. Show up for work every day on time, and do what you're paid to do when you're at work.
You can't do this for one hour on one day. You have to do this until you get a job. That's how you get a job if you can't get one any other way.
Wake up before sunrise. Get an early start. Hunt until you find something. You may be faced with the situation where nobody's going to bring something to you, you will have to go find it yourself.
No, let's talk about the ghosts you talk to. The ones in your TV.

It's obvious you are regretting your stupidity, but your stupidity is the price you pay for believing there are ghosts in your TV.

You're done here, Dweeb. Time for you to realize that and slink off.
